"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Some of Jesus' last words on the Cross. Why those words? The answer lies in Psalm 22. Richaél Lucero gives a run through of this prophetic Psalm. Listen and hear how it parallels the Passion of Christ with eerie detail. You'll also learn the answer to the pressing question: why did Jesus speak those words on the Cross? And was he communicating a bigger message?
King David is in the hot seat this week—week six of our series on salvation history. He's the most important figure in the Old Testament. David's "a man after God's own heart" after all. His life had many triumphs and some big falls. But of these vignettes, do we recall the covenant God made with him? Or that he was the first to live the role of Son of God since Adam—we're talking since creation here? Listen as Richaél Lucero answers these questions and more. Like, what about the blessing that came with being the Son of God and who it's supposed to benefit?
The Psalms are more than a collection of prayers. They tell the story of the Davidic Kingdom. In fact, they are the underpinning of the story—the inner thoughts, emotions, and movements of the heart of kings David and Solomon. Richaél Lucero reveals their story in the Psalms—all 150 of them. You'll find a wealth of human experiences put in words through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Listen and you'll learn how to navigate the Psalms and use their words, in your conversations with God.
